  • Insider Edition: Attaining security for IoT, through discovery, identity and testing

    Ever since the internet of things became a "thing," the potential for abuse has been well documented; how best to achieve security for IoT is not yet clear. This Insider Edition of Information Security magazine tackles that second issue head on.

    In three feature stories, our experts examine the key aspects closely related to IoT security: device discovery, IoT identity and IoT security testing. It's basic to security that, to devise a proper security strategy, a security team must possess an accurate record of what exactly needs to be secured. The challenge when it comes to security for IoT is in cataloging, assessing and classifying devices that can number into the thousands and are often located outside an enterprise's physical boundaries. Certain industries, such as healthcare, are well into tackling this challenge. But increasingly more companies of all sizes will have to give the issue careful attention.

    Readers of this Insider Edition will come away with a deeper understanding of how to approach security for IoT, from how to create a compilation of what needs to be secured to how to set up a successful security testing process. When it comes to internet of things security, the threat of breaches may never be fully eliminated, but the odds that enterprises will thwart attacks can be improved through proper policy and security systems.
